Kristina Wenninger is a permanent makeup artist and esthetician that lives and works in Los Angeles, California. She has been working in the field of Permanent Cosmetics, Skin Care, Traditional Makeup, and Permanent Cosmetics Event Planning since the year 2000. Throughout her permanent makeup career she has worked with several different devices and methods including Longtime Liner, Nouveau Contour, Cheyenne Hawk and has now settled in with her top choice, BIOTEK. Kristina is also an expert in the field of dermal needling. In 2014, Mrs. Wenninger was a keynote speaker on the topic of Micro Needling in the Permanent Makeup Artist’s practice at the European Congress of Aesthetic Medicine in Moscow. At Biotek’s first Worldwide Permanent Makeup Event in Stresa, Italy, Kristina was the sole speaker representing the United States where she educated her permanent makeup colleagues on the topic of Dermal Needling.
In January 2014, Kristina made her mark in permanent makeup education history by offering the first class in the United States to bring 4 of the world’s top performing permanent makeup artists, Anna Savina, Anya Zabolotnaya, Mary Ritcherson (US) and Nataliya Yeremenko. The Brows, Lips and Micro Needling Super Master Classes were held in Hollywood, California and drew students from Iceland, Spain, Denmark, Australia, Ireland, Brazil, Switzerland, Canada, Hong Kong, Great Britain, and all over the United States. The educational opportunity offered students not only the chance to learn from their permanent makeup idols but also afforded them the option of hands on learning with live models. This was the first class of its kind in the United States and spurred a global effort amongst top PMU artists, the world over, to offer more educational options for students to learn their unique and forward thinking techniques. Kristina’s sophomore venture into the permanent makeup event-planning sector occurred July 2014 in Los Angeles, California. She partnered with permanent makeup powerhouse, Biotek, to utilize their sponsorship model during this 5-day event series. Headlining master artists were Anna Savina and Tatiana Petraitis from the Biotek European family of master trainers. Students converged in downtown Los Angeles to learn Butterfly Eyeliner, 3 Dimensional hair stroke techniques as well as Baby Doll lips techniques. Upon the successful completion of the 60 student venture, these new techniques gained popularity among the pmu industry and have given the students who learned them the competitive edge amongst the other artists in their towns. In November, Kristina coordinated her final master class for the year 2014. She brought European Artist, Daria Chuprys to center stage so that she could share the “micro blading” technique, which was gaining popularity within the industry. The successful event was held at the historic and luxurious Biltmore Millennium Hotel in trendy downtown LA. Wenninger’s master classes always include the option to work on live models, which gives the technicians the highest probability of truly learning the techniques that are being taught. Kristina has crafted her training events around what she’s learned is the only way to truly grasp certain advanced permanent makeup concepts. Starting in January 2015, Kristina joined with Anna Savina and Biotek Permanent Makeup to open the doors for Biotek products to be distributed throughout America’s permanent makeup marketplace. Kristina is currently heading up the effort to spearhead BIOTEK sales, marketing and distribution in California. Her website,, gives artists the option to purchase Italian made Biotek products for the first time in American history. Plans are currently in the works to open the first Academy in Los Angeles to offer Biotek/Anna Savina techniques, slated to begin operation as early as summer 2015. Also for the year 2015, Mrs. Wenninger has identified 2 more world-class artists that she will be bringing to LA to share their highly coveted pmu techniques. May 2015 she will be hosting international leading artists Sviatoslav Otchenash and Natalia Smirnova of Tallinn, Estonia. These artists are on the cutting edge of creating new and concurrent ways of performing brows, lips and eyeliner which many artists are following and want to add to their skillsets. The work being produced by Sviatoslav and Natalia is some of the best in the world and maintains an uber-realistic result time and time again. Kristina maintains her efforts in always contracting artists from around the globe that possess skills beyond the ordinary for the master classes she organizes. Although busy with her career, Kristina still makes time each day to play trains and hide and seek with her 3-year-old son, Kristoffer. She also attends regular Crossfit workouts and will be competing in April 2015. She finds great rewards in working in the field of permanent cosmetics and continually strives to improve the lives of those she meets through her multi faceted businesses.
